To this end, the following points are made explicit to the student: 1) Attendance: Attendance is an important component of this course since information not contained in a textbook will be presented during class through lectures, videotapes, and demonstrations. Two unexcused absences will be allowed. However, two points will be deducted from the semester point percentage for each unexcused absence beyond the second. An absence from a regularly scheduled class will be excused if it is the result of illness, death in the family, religious observance or participation in a University-sponsored activity at the request of University authorities. Evidence documenting the cause for absence must be provided in writing within one week of the absence. To avoid a point deduction following an unexcused absence, the student may submit a typed, one page, abstract (about 250 words) of a peer- reviewed article
